Servings: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • ½ onion chopped fine
  • 1 ¼ c. tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 1 ¾ cups water
  • 2 ½ cups short pasta, any shape (I used elbow macaroni)
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Instructions
  1. In a large skillet, brown the beef with the salt, pepper, garlic, and onion. Drain the fat and add the tomato sauce and mustard, stirring gently.
  2. Add the pasta and water, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 12-15 minutes until the pasta is cooked.
  3. Turn off the heat, stir in the cheese, and serve. Garnish with chopped parsley or green onions. Deeeee-licious!
